on fridays we list five things

That is how blogland works. That is also how you justify linking up your blog so you can make new friends. So, thanks blog hosts and hello new friends. I'm Lauren, nice to meet you.

This week has been super uneventful at home and work. Uneventful is way better than a leak in the ceiling or replacing the AC though, so I will take it!

1) Andrew and I carpooled this morning and were both in the silliest moods. He decided to put on Adele and we tried to sing along in the weirdest voices we could come up with. I absolutely love Adele but no one can sing like she can, especially when they are trying to be ridiculous. It was a great way to start my Friday and I highly recommend it!

2) My boss said I could leave early today and laughed when I said "done!" without asking why. Who asks why? Just go if the boss says it's okay.

3) I drank the Erin Condren kool-aid and ordered a life planner last week (did I already blog about this?) In my defense, I had a gift card so that made the horrificially expensive planner only horribly expensive. Do you have one? Did you use it? I use a planner for work already and I am hoping that the expense + cute factor of this one makes me use it for home stuff, too. It's supposed to ship on Monday so expect an update.

4) Tomorrow we are cleaning the garage and as much as I am dreading it, I know it's a necessary step in selling our house. Dear Husband, I will be a much nicer wife if you wake me up with coffee and donuts.

5) I have a problem in that if someone talks about food or asks a question via social media, I pretty much have to respond. The question thing is like leaving someone hanging when they try to give you a high five - I want them to at least have one answer. And the food thing is just sharing the wealth... I mean I know I'm the one who consumed all these calories, but I don't want my hard work of trying out so many restaurants in the city to be in vain. Friends don't let friends eat at Chili's (unless that's what you like...) So, ask and you'll get an answer!

This post didn't led itself to photos well, so you get Bauer at a terrible angle. Please tell me I'm not the only one whose phone is full of pics of my pets!

Hope you have a great weekend and here's hoping for an exciting (in a good way) week next week!

  1. So you like the Erin Condren planner? I can't justify it, the only thing I consistently carry with me is my phone so I use the calendar and to do apps to get my life in order. :) They always looked cute tho.

    Mmmm donuts. :)

  2. I want to leave work early today!! Jealous!! Thank you for linking up :) and enjoy your weekend!!

  3. LOVE this post! I'm hoping the hubs is hearing your cry for donuts tomorrow morning. And I'm really thinking about getting one of those "amazingly very expense but oh so worth it" planners. I know a lot of people who have them and love them. Enjoy your Friday, and thanks for linking up with #theSowelllife today! Happy Weekend!!

  4. hehehe I wish I could have heard y'all singing! I feel really bad, but did I miss something? You're selling your house, but where are you going? Please tell me you're not leaving Houston!

  5. You are not the only one with a phone full of pet pictures!! Hahaha!

    I love the spontaneous jam session on the way to work! What a great way to start the day!

    Stopping by from Joy's Friday Five!

  6. I fell victim to Erin Condren last week too, also due to a gift card. I still shelled out $40 of my own. hahaha.

    I think mine ships Tuesday?

  7. so before my bf moved out to oregon he lived in DC and i don't remember how it got started, but anytime someone like you would come on i had to call him and sing it at the top of my lungs. or leave a voicemail. it was highly entertaining for a bit

  8. Which EC planner did you get? I've been thinking of getting one, maybe one day. My phone is FULL of pictures of my furbabies too! Good luck on the garage!

  9. Y'all singing Adele sounds hilarious! Are y'all moving houses soon or just getting organized?

  10. Keep us updated on how you like your EC planner. I went with a $10 planner from Target in preparation for the upcoming school year (I teach 7th grade). I always keep an ear open for the next great thing in organizing though...

  11. I feel your pain, we so need to clean out our garage this week! Thanks for linking up & following! Hope you have a great week!

  12. I had an EC planner last year, but I heard this year's are really different. Let me know what you think... I'm interested to know.
    I, personally, have a May Book. :)

    And I'm so with you girl about leaving early and not asking questions. My administrator at summer school told me to leave early from car duty, and ALTHOUGH I asked "Are you sure?" and she said yes... then I was gone lol.


I like comments and read them all but I'm not great about responding to them, so please don't be offended. I would much rather visit your blog instead!
